Class: Cleric (serves Pelor)
Played By: Bogan
Bogan wrote a great backstory for this character way back during out first campaign. Since then I’ve managed to misplace it. I’ll update this once I find his story. It’s somewhere in my DM notes.
Bogan is quiet, and so Enoch ends up being pretty quiet in-game as well. He’s actually one of the most observant characters, and uses his spells wisely. He’s caught me off guard a few times with suddenly casting a lesser-known (read: non-combat) spell like “zone of truth” when I wasn’t expecting it. As a DM, I always find it rewarding when players come up with solutions I hadn’t thought of.
The Death of Half-Life
Valve still hasn't admitted it, but the Half-Life franchise is dead. So what made these games so popular anyway?
The Witch Watch
My first REAL published book, about a guy who comes back from the dead due to a misunderstanding.
Resident Evil 4
Who is this imbecile and why is he wandering around Europe unsupervised?
Bethesda NEVER Understood Fallout
Let's count up the ways in which Bethesda has misunderstood and misused the Fallout property.
The Disappointment Engine
No Man's Sky is a game seemingly engineered to create a cycle of anticipation and disappointment.

Question, do you hang onto ‘spell lists’ in noncombat situations?
I love playing smart spell casters. Theres nothing like making a DM krap his pants because I possibly just derailed a campain with a smart spell combo.
illusions need much more credit!
Find it damit! If someone would have lost my “great” (no way lol) background story i would be fuzzing bout it for ages till i he found it again.
dude that name “bogan” is definetly from star wars
Illusion magic 4 lyfe, yo. I’m playing a Wizard 9/Rogue 2/Shadowdancer 1 in an (admittedly stagnant) online campaign… Forget Evocation and Transmutation and all of that shit. The non-combat magic is what makes casters all-powerful.
I had a theory about a year ago that if you never stated to others that you were actually casting an illusion, you can perform a weird arcane healing because the target believes the healing spell to be real. Since Illusion is almost entirely based on perception of truth, a PC with high bluff skills can basically convince all others that his spells are real and not illusions. A skilled and intelligent illusionist can best all but the greatest of mages with little effort using this theory.
@Dimas: That’s the point behind “shadow conjuration” and the like. :)
About 4 1/2 years since Shamus posted this and still no update on Enoch’s backstory.
And then one of my OTHER ideas is a super-vain Cleric or Paladin, that worships himself as the religion, and that’s where he gets his spells from.
So…. any luck finding that backstory?
I guess not
